About this book


This book aims to give junior urologists in training an idea of how to assemble equipment required for core urology procedures on a global level. This includes what to do pre-operatively, surgical indications and techniques, what to do post operatively, and complications that may occur.

It can be daunting taking up a post as a surgical trainee despite supervision of seniors. This book will help in instilling competence and confidence in the trainee with step by step descriptions of key specialty procedures and their variations. Important practical clinical anatomy will be illustrated as well as an emphasis on safety.

“The intended audience is trainees in urology, predominantly at the medical student or junior resident level. There are some more advanced chapters that could also be of use to senior residents who are training in urology or those who have just entered practice.” (Costas D. Lallas, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2018)
